Several pro-life bills are moving through the Kentucky legislature. The Roe v Wade Trigger Bill (HB 148) protects unborn life in all cases that do not threaten the mother’s life if the ruling is ever overturned. The Fetal Heartbeat Bill (SB 9) recognizes that a beating heart is the point where a new human life has come into existence and will be protected by law. Another bill addresses abortion disclosure requirements. SB 50, the Chemical Abortion Reporting Act,  requires chemical abortions to be reported to the Kentucky Department of Vital Statistics. It also requires abortionists who dispense the two-step drug to tell women that if they change their minds after taking the first pill, their initial choice can possibly be reversed.
